There has been a lot of buzz about Rx Muscle's Megalympia. Some have fought hard to drum up support for their favorite champions. Others have been disgusted to see their pick lose and cry out to the gods of Vengeance for retribution on the accursed forum members that didn't see things their way. Most of all, it's been fun and people have gotten a chance to share their view of the pro side of the sport and do some color commentary.
CHECK OUT DAVE PALUMBO AND TRIPLE H IN THE SEPTEMBER ISSUE OF MUSCLE & FITNESS MAGAZINE! You read that right! Our own Dave Palumbo (in the bright neon green "SPECIES" tank top) throws down, hardcore, old-school chest and back with WWE Superstar Triple H in the September 09 issue of Muscle & Fitness magazine. Dave has been working with Trip since well before his World Wrestling Championship victory over Randy Orton at Wrestlemania. And, the work is paying off! As you marvel at the incredible size and condition of the WWE superstar, remember that he is subject to perhaps the most stringent drug testing program in the country. Trip has been following Dave's high protein, low carb, moderate fat, ketogenic diet for over a year now and he's always in killer shape.
There is little doubt that bodybuilding enjoyed a wonderful and historic golden age out in Venice California. Back in the day, before exclusive magazine contracts, websites, DVD sales, supplement company endorsements and scandals involving performance enhancing-drugs, there was a little community of us, minding our own business, throwing down hardcore in a little gym down by the beach. We wore "gym shorts" and tank tops and sometimes even trained in flip-flops. Surely such attire would seem comical by today's standards, but style side down, we had it going on. We liked each other. We looked forward to training and looked forward to hanging out with each other after the work was through. Bodybuilding in Venice Beach was about as good as it could get if you had a mind to build your body and bask in the warm sun 365 days a year. Even dead-ass broke there was no better life, and every glance in the mirror proved we were the richest people in the world.
